Signs that you need to call our Brisbane leak detection team

  • Constant wet areas in the lawn or garden - this could be an actual puddle or just boggy soil.
  • Damp spots on the walls or ceiling, as well as peeling paint, discolouration, warping or flaking plaster.
  • Areas of mould growth - pay special attention to walls adjoining wet areas like the bathroom, laundry or kitchen.
  • Unusual growth - is there one tree or plant or one section of your garden which grows much faster than anywhere else?
  • Cracking walls or foundations, as constant exposure to water from a leaking pipe can damage your home structurally over time.
  • Warped or expanding cabinetry.
  • Sudden and ongoing low water pressure.
  • Damp carpets.
  • A musty smell inside the house.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs occurring around your home, or even if you haven't but still believe there is a leak, contact our team for a complete leak detection service today.

Industry leading leak detection outside your Brisbane home

A lot of traditional leak detection methods involve digging up random patches of your garden or lawn, removing pavers or pathways, just so the leak can be found

Acoustic Leak Detectors

Advancements in technology mean that these days, those methods which involve unnecessary damage and work are no longer the best way to do things. At Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage, we use Acoustic Leak Detectors to find the leak, meaning there is no need to dig to get answers. Our leak detection experts can help today, so give us a call!

Leak detection inside your Brisbane home

The Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage team don't just offer assistance with outdoor leaks - they can help with indoor leaking issues too. We understand and have seen first-hand the damage that a leak can do to the inside of a home, from cracks in the concrete to damaged cabinets to plasterboard that is beyond repair - your house can even shift and move.

There are a series of tests that can be run to figure out the cause and location of the leak, including:

  • Static test : Performed using a fluorescein dye mixed with water, to trace any leaks through waste lines. The waste line is plugged off and the shower tray is filled with coloured water to test the waterproofing.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure test : Conducted to see if the water line will hold pressure. If a drop in pressure at a specified time occurs, a leak is confirmed.
  • Flood test : Very simple test but highly effective. If the tiles and screens are flooded with water and if water shows in the affected area, then a leak is confirmed.
  • Visual inspection : One of the most important tests, including a very thorough inspection of the taps, spindles, pipes, toilet cisterns, drains, and other plumbing fixtures around the building.
